Hoping to take a cruise with Princess Cruises later this year? If so, now is a great time to start looking at cruise itineraries. That’s because Princess Cruises is currently having its Best.Sale.Ever. Want to wait until next year for a cruise? You can book a 2023 trip as well. Please note that this exclusive sale expires March 2, 2022.

Princess Cruises Best.Sale.Ever

The Best.Sale.Ever (BSE) applies to all guests, all staterooms, all cruises and tours. To further clarify, BSE is valid for staterooms and suites, any duration and destination. With many services included, guests can save on crew appreciation, specialty dining and more. Further details of the Best.Sale.Ever can be found via Princess Cruises. Please note that there are some limitations. BSE is available only to residents of the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.

What Perks To Enjoy With The Best.Sale.Ever

Crew Appreciation

Crew appreciation is Princess Cruises’ daily amount charged for each guest. In other words, a daily tip charge is added to your account and disbursed to staff. Without the current Best. Sale.Ever offer, daily charges apply to each guest in all room categories. For instance, it’s $14.50 for Interior, Oceanview and Balcony staterooms and $15.50 for Mini-Suites and Club Class. For guests in Suites, it’s $16.50 per day.

Premier Beverage Package

The Premier Beverage Package represents a substantial portion of the savings in the Best.Sale.Ever. In fact, it’s more than 71 percent of the total savings on a seven-day cruise. Specifically, the package includes cocktails, wine, beer and fountain sodas. It further includes bottled water, specialty coffees and teas. Additionally, service charges are included in this package. With all this in mind, you can understand why it’s called the Best.Sale.Ever.!

Without the Best.Sale.Ever Package

If you were to purchase the Premier Beverage Package separately, it’s $59.99 per guest aged 21+, per day. So, it can amount to nearly $840 for two people on a seven-day cruise. Additionally, there is an 18 percent service charge added to all itineraries except Australia.

Premier Coffee & Soda Package For Guests Under 21

If you have guests under 21 in your party, the Premier Coffee & Soda Package is available. On the other hand, this package is also available for those who do not drink alcoholic beverages. However, there is a smaller saving amount compared to the Premier Beverage Package. The Premier Coffee & Soda Package is $19.99 per day plus a 18 percent service charge. There is no refund for the difference through the BSE offer.

Specialty Dining

If you’ve experienced Specialty Dining onboard a Princess cruise, you know how fabulous it can be. Specialty Dining offers the finest culinary experience on any Princess cruise ship. What’s more, these select restaurants offer menus curated by highly acclaimed chefs. Indeed, depending upon your itinerary, your Specialty Restaurant may be Bistro La Mer or Harmony.

Stateroom Location Upgrade

Another nice perk you can have is changing the location of your stateroom. This means you can move to a same category stateroom to a more convenient location. So if you have a balcony stateroom, you can move to another balcony stateroom in a different location. The location upgrade applies to all stateroom categories


The last but certainly not the least most important perk is complimentary Wi-Fi for one device. For a seven-day cruise, this means you will save nearly $70 on wireless service. For many passengers, no additional charge is necessary. However, if you bring your smartphone, laptop and tablet, you’ll need to upgrade your MedallionNet. For $60, you can use up to four different devices.
